  • The Watchmen Movie. Will you see it?

    DC Comics has a movie coming out based on some of their characters titled The Watchmen.

    Will you go see it? I doubt I will because I don't know anything about the characters. But I did love the trailer for the movie that played before Dark Knight. They did a tremendous job editing that I think.

    Of course I'll see Watchmen, because I'm a big fan of the graphic novel.

      I have never, NEVER done a midnight showing for ANY movie in my life ... but I'll be doing it for "The Watchmen"!

      GO HERE to download a free chapter of the animated graphic novel for iTunes.

        I will say, this is a graphic novel that defines 'tragedy.' I've always wondered how they could make my favorite comic books into films---and well, I know no matter how bad or good, I'll probably venture out to see this one.

        D-Dub, you might be able to get a copy of the graphic novel from the local library. Might want to read it prior. It's a very different world from the DC Universe, but surprisingly relevant in the 80's (the Reds are coming! The Reds are coming!) and at current (there are terrorists coming!).

        Pay it a visit and let us know what you think!

              The trailer is amazing. I have not read the graphic novel but I think that I'm going to buy it and read it before the movie comes out. I have herd some amazing things about it.

                I had a hard time getting through the entire story when it came out as twelve issues. Just so much information to absorb! But recently, I bought the trade paperback and made the time to read every panel AND every prose feature that followed each issue/installment. All together, it was an amazing, complex, human and tragic read. Very heady, I'm sure a lot of it over my head, but man, am I glad I finally read it.

                And so obviously, Yes! I'm going to watch "Watchmen" when it comes out, probably at midnight as well.

                And btw I saw that iTunes download of the "Watchmen" that TikiRoomLiz mentioned. Not bad, good production values, a nice way to get introduced to it in fifteen minutes. That said, I'll also be curious to see my non-comic book friends' reactions after they watch the film. They loved the trailer too, and I suppose that's the bigger test for WB, isn't it? Reaching beyond the core fans to get more butts in the seats by presenting a kick *** mature film about very human heroes.

                  You won't go and see it because you don't know anything about the characters?!
                  Do you need to know everything about a movie before you see it? Although trailers have been known to lie, I expect great things of this film, and by the time it comes out I dare say that the publicity machine will make sure that you know about the characters involved.

                    I will watch the Watchmen
                    There is no right or wrong in this debate. It is simply a matter of perspective.

                      I just stumbled on this today, I was sucked in by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, LOVE HIM. So I looked up this movie and watched the trailor, looks REALLY good and I know nothing of this comic or story.

                      We will probably go see it for sure.

                        Well, the trailer was a bit interesting and caught my eye. Still don't know if I will go see it though, But I may go check out the comics like recommended. My mind can possibly change in the next few months.

                            It looks okay. I think I'll see it.

                              Never even heard of Watchmen until I saw the trailer for it before The Dark Knight.

                              I'll pass.
